Tribe Athletics confirmed Monday that defensive coordinator Bob Shoop has resigned from his position at the College.

It had been rumored that Shoop was considering leaving the College in order to become the defensive coordinator at Vanderbilt. Neither Vanderbilt nor Shoop have announced that he will assume the position.

Before coming to William and Mary in 2007, Shoop was the head coach at Columbia for three years before taking a defensive backs coach position at CAA rival Massachucetts.

Shoop was credited with bringing a new type of defensive toughness to the College, and the Tribe’s defense thrived under his tenure. Current NFL players Derek Cox ’09, Adrian Tracy ’10 and Sean Lissemore ’10 all played under Shoop.
